Donuts anyone?
We are ready for Halloween. I just finished my daughter's costume, she will be a box of donuts. I couldn't find enough "donuts" to fill the box so I added a cup of coffee and some napkins at the bottom to get the effect of fullness. 
I made a box with poster boards and the donuts are bath sponges. I cut a hole in the muddle, cut some felt for the icing and added some sprinkles, yarn,  pompoms, beads and other things I had for the topping. I had so much fun putting this together.
Trick or treat!

A new small pillow for my cat lover daughter. This time it's a JBW design. I wish I could have used a non variegated thread as the details of the details don't pop up as much as I wanted. I had fun matching the fabrics to make this project. 
The cat pillow collection is growing 
Have a great week end.

I can now share my pictures of the Summer challenge organized by Jura Point de Croix. We had the summer to stitch and do the finishing of one or all the charts given to us. I decided to do 2 different things. The sheep was lovely to stitch with some simple special stitches. I use an oval hoop for the sheep and a metal plaque as support for the houses stitching. I couldn't find a small sheep to embellish so I made my own with small pompom.
To see all the entries of the summer challenge, visit Jura Point de Croix's website. Some finishing are stunning.
Also....the charts are available to everyone now just in case you decide to stitch one or all!

Happy Fall :)
I was waiting fall to harvest my pumpkins I grew in my garden. They will decorate the front porch. They are so fun to grow, I try to grow some every year.

And since now it is fall, this is the first fall stitching I had finished. JBW chart stitched with Week Dye Work thread. I was never truly happy of my sewing finishing when doing cushions. So I decided to get better and experiment (thanks to Pinterest ;)). I loved it and since, I made several small cushion finishing I will show you soon. Fun, fun, fun....

I did some cleaning recently and I found this tiny could be a Z, it could be a N! 
Tiny and cute...

One of my older project I didn't share before... Jardin Prive's SAL organized few years back. 
Hard to find a way to finish it because of its long shape. I finally find a pre framed canvas in the painting department of my craft shop and just had to embellish. Looking sharp :)
